Yes, we have been getting snow for the past three days, and the wind is absolutely freezing cold! I was able to walk the pups this afternoon, but the wind is still pretty chilly and Gailbraith mountain which is close to me is all white again. Dang!!! I thought it was spring! So did the hummers. See their feeder?
A few weeks ago I bought two ranaculus. As you can see one is a lighter shade of pink. I love them but hadn't got around to getting them in the ground. It's a good thing because they can't take freezing temps. These lovely flowers are sitting on my kitchen counter until old man winter gets lost and Miss. Spring makes her grand appearance!
I thought you'd like to see the window sill above my kitchen sink. I've noticed that in more modern homes, you don't see window sill's much anymore, but I love them and wouldn't want a house without them. Where else can I put all my cute treasures and precious plants?
See the two Impatient plants? I had them growing on the back deck last year and when fall came and the temps began to drop, I did what I have done for many years. I snip a small piece of the plant and put it in a glass of water on this window sill. Within a week or so it has roots so I plant it in a cute little pot. I found these pots at our Goodwill store. One was a dollar and the teapot that the pink impatient is in was a quarter. Can't beat the price.
Throughout the winter I have watered them and started giving a little fertilizer in February, which made them double in size. They have bloomed all winter for me and are still going strong.
This is a nice way to bring your summer flowers indoors to enjoy throughout the cold winter months. And when I look through the blossoms to the icy snow on the ground outside, it sort of makes me feel sassy.
Well dear friends, this has been a fun weekend, even if we did get snowed on. The wedding was lovely and so was the champagne. ((((smile))))
